Boston planned to deploy Pedroia atop the order Sunday, but he ended up slotting in sixth after typical table setter Andrew Benintendi was a late addition to the lineup as a replacement for Jackie Bradley (illness). Benintendi fouled a ball off his foot in the third inning that resulted in him sustaining a painful bruise, so he'll move to the bench in the series finale and open up the No. 1 spot in the lineup for Pedroia. While Benintendi's injury is viewed as a day-to-day situation, Pedroia should at least get a boost in DFS formats Monday as he faces off against Orioles righty Dan Straily.
